This week, we take a look at one of the most remarkable figures of the 20th century, and someone you've probably never heard of: Florence Price, the first African American woman to have a piece performed by a major symphonic orchestra.  We'll be discussing that piece, the Symphony in E Minor, and also a lot more, including Price's life story, the music of Dvorak, and the source material that inspired both of these composers.  This is one of my favorite episodes in the history of the show, so check it out!
